    Alice Meets the White Rabbit Tweedledee and Tweedledum Painted Illustration by Mel Crawford (Simon and Shuster, 1951). "Why what peculiar little figures! Tweedledee and Tweedledum!" says Alice as she meets this strange pair in the Tulgey Wood. This is an original published painting by Mel Crawford (1925 - 2015) of Alice with Tweedledee and Tweedledum. This lavishly illustrated 1951 Little Golden Book edition came out in conjunction with the film's release. Mel Crawford is considered one of the greatest children's book illustrators of the 1950s and 60s. His work can be seen on virtually every storybook based on animated films and animated television shows from this era. Mr. Crawford won the Franklin Mint Gold Award for his paintings as well as several Grumbacher Gold Medals. He was a longtime leading artist for Whitman Publishing. Original Mel Crawford published Disney children's book paintings are highly coveted. This is striking original gouache painting on light board measuring 10" x 10". Absolutely VIBRANT colors! Minor handling wear, minor glue stains on back. In Very Good condition.
